Program Strengths

With over 50 graduate faculty active in both teaching and research, we offer supervision in all major areas of philosophy. The department has outstanding coverage of all periods in the History of Philosophy. The Collaborative Program in Ancient and Medieval Philosophy offers students an intensive education in the languages and philosophical texts of antiquity; the department is also strong in Early Modern Philosophy. Value Theory is another area of strength, with prominent faculty in Ethics, Metaethics, Practical Reason and Aesthetics. The department has leading scholars in Philosophy of Mind, as well as Metaphysics, Epistemology, Continental Philosophy, Philosophy of Language and Philosophy of Science. / Graduate students are very actively involved in our research community, not only attending lectures but also organizing reading groups and workshops. In recent years, Toronto graduate students have published in journals such as The Journal of Philosophy, Philosophical Studies, Philosophical Quarterly, Analysis, Philosophy of Science, and British Journal for the History of Philosophy.
